Music Together is an internationally acclaimed early childhood education program designed for children from newborns to 5 years old.

Music Together's songs, rhythms, chants, dances, and instrument jams expose your child to a wide variety of musical styles, rhythms, subject matter, and languages.

Instruments and props include:  bells, eggs shakers, drums, balls, scarves, rhythm sticks, and more!

The range of minor, major, aeolian, and dorian melodies, as well as the varying rhythms of Music Together songs help make for some sophisticated listening that will interest both you and your child!

The Music Together program develops your child's basic rhythmic and tonal competence, all while having a great time and fostering the bond between the parent/caregiver and child. Come have fun with us!


  • In Music Together, we celebrate the fact that all children are born with the capacity to be musical! You can nurture the musical growth of your child, regardless of your own musical ability.
  • Our Music Together classes build on your child's natural enthusiasm for music and movement.
  • Come experience a class that fosters fun and creativity, as well as social and musical learning in a pressure-free environment!
  • Music Together is appropriate for all children, infants to five years old. We therefore encourage parents to enroll children with autism/special needs as this is one environment where they can just let go, be free, and express themselves musically. 


ABOUT OUR CLASSES:
We offer weekly 45-minute weekly classes. Together we explore music through songs, rhythmic rhymes, movement and instrument "play-along".

MIXED-AGE CLASSES (0 to 5 years):
Educators have long considered mixed-age groupings to foster beneficial learning skills. Our activities focus on adult/child interaction, where the adult is the musical role model for their child. 
This class is the basis for all Music Together classes, so if you have an infant, don't hesitate to take this class if the Monday 12:15 pm class isn't a good time for you.  All of our teachers have had specialized training in working with each age group; infants, toddlers, and 3-5 year-olds in a mixed age setting.

BABIES ONLY CLASS (0-8 months):

They may be pre-verbal and pre-mobile, but they’re not pre-musical! A specially designed one-semester introduction to music for our youngest music-makers. Musical activities such as finger play, lap songs, and songs without words are emphasized though we learn songs with words too. A great way to have fun with your new baby, learn how they learn, and meet other new parents.   Class tuition includes 2 CDs, a songbook, and 2 free make ups.  Babies are also welcome in our mixed-age classes.    

  To inquire about birthday parties, please email us directly at brooklynmusictogether@gmail.com.
